In light of the recent announcement of the closure of the University of East London’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences, two events are being planned for next week.
The first is a funeral service for the School’s demise. This is from my colleague, Jenny
The Funeral will be held at
13.30 Tuesday 22nd March 2011
Outside the East Building of the University of East London, Dockland’s Campus
Followed by a gathering of students and Staff for a one minute silence to mark the death of Humanities.
The second is a strike that has been called for Thursday, 24 March by the local branch of the UCU. I will be on the picket line.
